Old thread.... one more question...
Letīs say i found a nice boat
in EU waters. As i am EU citizen, with EU resident, i would have to pay the VAT of the country the boat
is berthed and i am purchasing
it, in case the boat is not VAT payed (like most of the cats in the med, as they come out of charter).
Letīs say i found a nice Yacht in Greece
for 300.000 US$. VAT there would be 24%. So 72.000 US$ for Mr. Alexis Tsipras and his socialists party... Ups...
Now... my many year long partner (girlfriend, wife or whatever) is citizen and have resident outside EU wonderland. Wouldnt it just be the most easy way to have her
buy me my boat, register it under her name and flag it in her (outside EU wonderland) country?
Anything wrong with that?
